The following birds are available for sale at this time. They are priced so the average person can afford them. So don't pass up some good birds just because they're not priced at several hundred dollars each. If you're at the other end of the financial spectrum, you need to realize that these are pedigreed animals and not street pigeons. The day of the five-dollar pigeon is long gone. They are priced so I can receive some reasonable return on the investment I have made in feed, time caring for them, etc.

What is a pigeon really worth? The value of a pigeon depends on three factors, and you can read about them here.

You will find some rare-colored birds among those listed. It is important to remember that we are a FLYING loft, not a COLOR loft. Our rare colors are required to fly right with the other birds. We sell youngsters that we raise out of our flyers, but we will seldom sell the rare-colored flyers themselves because we will be using them later as breeders.

I am selling pigeons, not paper, but almost all of those listed below have extensive pedigrees. I will provide whatever pedigree information I have on each bird listed. Feel free to email me and request an electronic copy of the pedigree of any bird listed here.

PLEASE NOTE: The last few years have seen significant increases in postal rates. Therefore, if birds are to be shipped to you (shipping to destinations in the USA only), the shipping charge will be $55 for one or two birds, $75 for 3 or 4 birds, $100 for 5 or 6 birds, and $120 for 7 or 8 birds to cover the cost of postage and a special USPS-approved shipping box. (Larger boxes not only cost more, but they also mean even more weight, hence the jump in shipping costs as the number of birds increases.) More than 8 birds will require a second box.

Payment can be made via money order (I do not accept personal checks) or you can use Visa or Mastercard by clicking on the Paypal logo below. Paypal is preferred.

Major Loft Reduction I have decided that due to factors related to family, age, health, and other interests, that I need to drastically reduce the numbers of pairs I keep for breeding. Therefore I will be offerring somewhere between 8 and 12 pair of my breeders immediately. These are the same birds that have bred my current YB and OB flying teams and are as good as anything I have. Included will be some birds that have actually raised race winners. Price is generally $300 per pair, plus shipping, but there will be at least two older pair of HVR's that will be priced at just $100 due to their age. Contact me for details.

2. May hatch blue bar, no. 6210. This appears to be a cock, but I cannot guarantee the sex. He definitely carries the gene for recessive opal and if indeed a cock he will also carry the gene for reduced. Sire is down from the same family that raised "Snake River", a 200-mile winner, and dam goes back to "Heisenberg", my best flyer over the last ten years and one of the best flyers I have ever raised. Full pedigree. Both prior rounds either are flying on my YB team or have been sent out to futurities. Full pedigrees. Buy one or both. Price: $35.

Very light 2016 barless blue cock, apparently a barless blue opal. That is my best guess, since both parents carry recessive opal. Late hatch and therefore unflown, but his father is a sibling to several diploma winners. Dam is also a sibling of at least one diploma winner and is down from an imported barless cock from Willie Thiele of Australia. Price: $100

4. Summer hatch 2016 bronze hen. This is a full sister to a bird that placed 2nd in a 250 mile futurity race. Both parents carry the gene for recessive red, and a full sibling of this hen is a recessive red, so there is a 67% chance she also carries that gene. The only pedigree information I have on her are the parents, since the breeder of those parents does not keep any pedigree records. Buy her now before I decide to keep her as a breeder. Price: $25
5. May hatch ash red cock no. 6223. This pigeon carries the gene for dilute, since his mother is a yellow bar. His sire is down from "The Iceman", a 300-mile winner; and "Man-O-War's Soldier", an AU Elite Champion and 2-time Hall of Fame winner. Dam is unflown but both her parents were flown, her sire out to 255 mile, prior to both being pulled for the breeding loft. Dam is also down from "The Iceman" on both sides. Older siblings are on our current young bird team. Full pedigree. Price: $35
6. Late June hatch silver no. 6396. I'm not 100% certain, but this certainly looks and handles like a hen. This is a beautiful pigeon that is out of a Rick Nanez grizzle that is a grandson of "Moby Dick". Performance throughout the pedigree. Dam is a long-distance Wegge from Steve Jenkins of Virginia. Full pedigree on sire's side, limited information on dam's side. Maternal grandparents both flew 600 miles, and mother flew 300. Gorgeous pigeon that just slips through your hands. She would be a great mate for lot no. 5 above. On the other hand, she will likely be in my breeding loft if she does not sell. Price: $35
7. SOLD 2013 barless blue cock, no. 36925, bred from my flyers. Sire flew 6 races out to 255 miles prior to being stocked. Dam flew 120 and 125 before being pulled for stock. "The Iceman", an ash red barless 300-mile winner is on both sides of the pedigree. 36925 is approximately 1/4 Van Loon. This cock was a late hatch and therefore unflown himself. However, I believe that nowhere will you find a barless blue like this, bred from proven flying stock, at this price, which is about 1/3 his true value. Mate to the barless blue hen listed below. Full pedigree. Price: $150 - Sold (TH)
8. June hatch blue bar/WF no. 6265, bred from my flying team. Sire is out of a son of "Heisenberg", my best old bird flyer of the past fifteen years, and a hen that has consistently raised diploma winners and bred by Ron Pairan, an "AU Legend of the Sport". Dam is out of an AU Registered Champion when mated to "The Y2K cock", who has consistently raised children and grandchildren who were diploma winners. Sire of 6265 is a diploma winner and the dam of 6265 is also a diploma winner. No guarantee as to the sex of this pigeon, but it appears to be a hen. Full Pedigree. Price: $50
9. 2015 barless blue hen no. 5180. inbred to "The Iceman", an ash red barless cock that is a 300-mile winner and a foundation cock of my barless family. Sire of 5180 was bred for stock, but is out of a son of "The Iceman" who flew six races out to 255 miles, and a blue barless hen that is a granddaughter of "The Iceman", and who flew 2 races prior to being pulled for stock.. Dam of 5180 is a khaki barless who is out of a full brother to lot 1 above, and a yellow bar hen that is a granddaughter of "The Iceman". Full pedigree. Price: $100
